    About Win 10 generic product keys


    Win 10 Home ..........................TX9XD-98N7V-6WMQ6-BX7FG-H8Q99
    Win 10 Pro .............................VK7JG-NPHTM-C97JM-9MPGT-3V66T

    Those are the known generic product keys.

    I have a pre-install Win 7 Home Premium > upgraded to Win 10 Home
    I ran my speccy and it gave me this "serial number"..........
    T49TD - 6VFBW - VV7HY - B2PXY - MY47H

    I have seen this set of numbers mentioned in the net.
    I know it is NOT my Win 7 key.
    So, what is it ?

    It is most likely a generic key that the OEMs use to activate hundreds of systems. So this key is not unique to your system and therefor useless for activation.

    From an elevated ("run as administrator") command prompt type:

    slmgr /dlv

    If you see anything about KMS activation in the detailed license information, you are going to have major issues if you ever need to clean install Windows 10 and hope to activate it with a digital entitlement. You want to see RETAIL channel activation.
